Made some great records with the Boomtown Rats.
Made a (surprising) decent fist of several acting jobs.
Made some terrible solo records.
Paraphrased from In Dublin magazine, January 1987, comparing and contrasting the debut solo LPs of Bob Geldof and Feargal Sharkey: "Surrounded in a celebrity cocoon of cosy incompetence", Geldof's solo debut may contain interesting songs but the treatments are so predictable the question is moot. The article also noted the albums magpie tendancies, noting the striking similarities between "This Is The World Calling" and "Under Pressure"; "When I Was Young" and "The Man Who Sold The World"; "Love Lie A Rocket" and "Waterloo Sunset"; "August Was a Heavy Month" and "Baby Blue".
